How Well Does Dominoes Rate as a Strategy Game?

Posted November 14, 2008 @ 9:32 pm - Filed under: Domino Games

According to a post on (Top 20 Greatest Strategy Games), Dominoes is the 20th-best strategy game of all time:

The game features bones (tiles) with a number of pips on them. Players match them up trying to empty their hands by matching one of the numbers with one of the free numbers on the table. Dominoes are also noted for being able to stand on end in long rows so that when one is knocked over they all fall in a row. A popular pasttime is lining up hundreds or thousands of dominoes to make designs when they fall.

OK …

Some domino games are purely mechanical, other can be quite strategic. Which dominoes game is the poster referring to? Doesn’t say.

The number one, most strategic game in the world, according to this list? Poker.

Uh, yeah.

What do you think? How should Dominoes rate in the pantheon of strategic games?
